This concept is about expressing our feelings, thoughts and share them with our friends, family, classmates...
They are polaroid frames where you can insert your photo and then in the bottom you can express whatever you feel and if you want to customize your picture you just have to draw on top of it.
Then share it to your friends or classmates and talk about your “creation”, why you have drawn or writte something, and try to be more self confident.
The target is to get everybody involved, so it doesn’t mind if you are shy, because everybody is going to do that and if don’t want to put your photo, just draw or whatever. We all are free to put whatever we want in the frames.

Context

Who?
Everybody can use it, from children to adults
Where?
Can be used at school, uni, home...
Why?
The main target of this is to express our feelings and be more confident with ourselves and also to boost our creativty trought our feelings.
When?
Whenever we want we can change our “status” and photo, because feelings change fast, so whenever we have the need to express our feelings and want to be creative, we just have to change it.
(image 1)
Can use a photo of yourself, of something that inspires you or even just a drawing. Whenever you feel to change the photo and express whatever you want to.

How it works?
1. Take a pic
2. Put it into the frame
3. Depending on the topic proposed by the teacher, your parents, you have to draw, writte, whatever related with the topic, in the bottom of the frame.
4. Hang it, paste it, wherever you want.
5. Make groups and talk about our feelings, why we have draw or writte it, it will give us more cofidence and also boost our creativty trought our feelings.

What makes it a good idea?

Benefits
Sharing our feelings help us to get more confidence with ourselves and at the same time with our capacity of creativity.
Designed and spread
Can be found in photgraphy shop, stationery shop, in a web page, social network... Delivered in a pack of 6 frames with 6 pens.
What makes it unique?
A photo can say and exprsess a lot about ourselves but, the fact of mixing pictures and feelings, draws and thoughts, can help our confidence and at the same time to our creativity because we can put inside the frames whatever we want.

In this challenge, we want to create ideas with young people, not for them. Outline how you’re planning to involve young people or other end-users (parents, teachers, etc) in designing, iterating or testing your idea during the Ideas phase.

The target is to get everybody involved, so it doesn’t mind if you are shy, because everybody is going to do that and if don’t want to put your photo, just draw or whatever. We all are free to put whatever we want in the frames.

What skills, input or guidance would you like to receive from the OpenIDEO community to help you build out or refine your idea further?

I'll need some graphic design support for the packaging and maybe some financial cost, but these frames are not much expensive.

I know your idea so I know that you are improving it and I think that creating a platform, like a website is the best way to spread it.

I like the idea to customize a picture trying to explain what are you feeling at that moment.

Sounds cool, Angeles. Thought you might be keen to check out Photo Voice: http://www.photovoice.org Much of their work is not directed at young people – but there could be learnings from their use of photography as a community engager & activator as you continue to evolve your idea.
